We swing by the new finale to Kilimanjaro Safari to see the zebras in action, and poke our heads into a few stores to see recent changes. Join us as we also tour Pirates Mini Golf in Crossroads, just outside Downtown Disney (and also visible from Interstate 4). It’s one of the better-themed golf courses in the theme-heavy area of Central Florida!

We recently had the chance to follow two young girls as they ventured into the Magic Kingdom for makeovers. One wanted to become a princess at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique inside Cinderella Castle and the other made her way into Adventureland to join the scallywags at the Pirates League.
You can read about their journeys in an article written by our own “Out of the Loop” writer Andy Guinigundo in the Fall 2009 issue of Orlando Attractions Magazine.
To accompany the article, here is a fun video I put together documenting the two girls’ makeovers:
